Three for ya!

Hello my crafting friends, hope this finds you all safe and well. Did you enjoy the marvelous shows Sheena did? Fabulous demos and fabulous cards made by the team.

I thought I would show you some more that I made for the shows.

This one was painted using Aquatints for the background then salt sprinkled over the top and left overnight to dry before rubbing all the excess salt away, this gives an amazing background. I just stamped on the shed and wheelbarrow and painted them in with Aqua markers. I stamped & coloured the pots & watering can with Aqua markers then cut them out and positioned them on the card as seen.

Background was painted with Aquatints and left to dry. Then using the Topiary Stencil I stenciled on the two topiary on the right and coloured them in with Aquatints, the bird topiary I spread modelling paste through the stencil and roughed it up a bit to add texture then painted this with Aquatints. The hanging branch was also painted by dabbing on the Aquatints with a sponge, mixing the colours to make the leaves look Autumn like.

For this one I started by stamping and painting the brick wall for the background, I then cut a door & frame out of White hammered card, cutting the door twice so I had two layers. I then stenciled the topiary onto some card, painted them in and cut out to stick either side of the door. Adding some finishing touches like the gold letterbox, door knob & letter.

I believe Sheena may have some more shows coming up next month showing these stamps again, dates are yet to be confirmed.

Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx

  7. Hi Jacquie,
    what wonderfully created cards
    I love the fab work involved in these gorgeous creations.
    I would just love to be able to afford those aqua tints.
    I was very tempted by the shows, and had to sit on my hands as I could not afford them at the mo, and it's such a pity as there was a wonderful offer on them.
    Have a very lovely weekend.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
